The Bronx Defenders Virtual Community Policy Summit

The Bronx Defenders will hold a virtual Community Policy Summit on Tuesday, February 1, 6-8pm EST.
Are you a member of the Bronx community?  Are you interested in advocating for laws and policies that will create a more fair, just, and equitable legal system?  Do you want to ensure that policy reforms reflect the needs and wants of our community?  Then The Bronx Defenders need you!
Join them virtually to discuss their robust policy agenda focusing on topics that cover immigration, the family regulations system, the criminal justice landscape, housing, and more.  During this summit, you will learn about their previous policy wins, the campaigns they are working on, and how you can get involved in what interests you most.  This is an opportunity to engage in transformational conversations about issues that impact the Bronx, brainstorm policy solutions to combat injustices in our current legal system, and discuss The Bronx Defenders policy agenda.
 
Topics will include:

 ACS and the Family Regulation System in Communities of Color

Sentencing Reform, Bail Reform, Diversion Court, and Criminal Record Sealing

Stemming the Deportation Pipeline

Post-eviction moratorium and the Right to Counsel in housing cases
